We're remodeling our kitchen, and in the process are taking down the wall between it and the dining room to make everything feel more open and spacious. The range (a 36" Viking drop-in 6 burner) will go in a peninsula that separates the two rooms - really, the only spot it can go due to the limitations of the space.
Now we're struggling with the problem of what to do about a hood. A big hood will make the whole point of taking down the wall moot - it'll close off the space we just spent thousands to open.
We've come up with three options:
1) Downdraft pop-up, like the Thermador 600 CFM. I know people poo-poo these, but it would save the open feeling.
2) Trying to find as unobtrusive a hood as possible. Maybe something glass. (Any suggestions?)
3) Installing a ceiling mount, in-line exhaust fan like this: http://www.ventilationdirect.com/cata.... Our kitchen designer said he did this in another house, and it worked well. We're a little dubious.
Can anyone make any recommendations?
